Argentina - Ushuaia by lux69aeterna Argentina - Ushuaia by lux69aeterna
Ushuaia in Argentina is usually seen as the most southermost city in the world, though Puerto Williams in Chile is contesting this. The first settlements in the area are about 10 000 years old, and originate from the Yanama people. The complete area is called "Tierra del Fuego" or "Land of the fire" as Fernando de Magallanes saw fires of native people while he was crossing the channels en route to Asia and Europe to complete his round the world trip. The name Ushuaia was first used by the South American Mission Society of England that is responsible for the first settlements. Missionaries were sent there and worked with the Yanama. 

Nowadays Ushuaua is a city with about 120 000 inhabitants, and a famous starting point for exploration trips going to Antarctica. In winter it is a well known ski-resort where people from the whole of Argentina and foreigners come to spend a few days during short holidays.
